Our visitor from IFMA (Institut Français de Mécanique Avancée) Adrien Koeesler has finished his stay among us. As a way to conclude his period he gave a presentation of his work in our lab, mainly in grasp planning with our Baxter robot, that we used in the Amazon Picking Challenge.
This morning we were visited by the students from the "Escola d'estiu".
Our group participated in the Amazon Picking Challenge
Some school students visited us this friday and a nice time with the NAOs robots.
Our laboratory is organizing the "2015 IEEE-RAS Summer School on Experimental Methodology, Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking in Robotics" that will take place in Benicassim (Castellón) from September 14-18. Call for participation and preregistration are already available.
Several members of the group presented papers in ICRA 2015. Here we can see Dr. Marco Antonelli during his presentation.
Congratulations to Marco Antonelli, a member of the group which defended successfully his PhD thesis, "Visuomotor Representations of the Peripersonal Space in Humanoid Robots: Learning by Gazing and Reaching" supervised by professor Angel P. del Pobil.
